Torquay in Devon, a small seaside town on the South West coast of England, offers a variety of mixed properties ranging from fisherman's cottages, Georgian town houses and modern apartments. The climate in Torquay is heavily influenced by the North Atlantic drift since it lies right on the coast in Devon. The weather in that area can be relatively changeable and extreme weather in the form of storms and floods is common. Properties of any age and size are at risk of damage from woodworm, wood rot and damp, however problems such as these tend to be more prevalent in older properties. The excess moisture provided by the Atlantic depressions can lead to structural damage and timber decay if damp is absorbed through the floors or walls into the fabric of a property.  

Insects such as wood-boring beetles can damage timber commodities being transported by shipping containers through commercial ports. Woodworm may also affect residential properties under the right conditions, as different species of wood-boring beetle often have a preference to particular types of wood.
